Re: Inferno 10th Anniversary Announcement
If figterbays are not very obvious and turret configuration is more or less correct (I was always a big fan of all these missile launchers Phobos Adv. had, especially VLS-style ones), it could work if resized (bays could be stripped off pathes and called Bussard intakes or something).

Bussard intakes don't make any sense on FreeSpace ships.

People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Don't be morons, one of those is clearly a callout to the atmospheric designs that FreeSpace uses as inspiration for its flight model, whereas the other is a piece of adopted Treknobabble. Bussard intakes only make sense if they are very, VERY large (hundreds or thousands of kilometers iirc), primarily magnetic, and used on ships traveling near C.

Dude, I don't even know what Buzzard intakes are, I was making a joke. Though if they're from Trek, my automatic vote is no. :P

Star Trek did use Bussard Ramscoops (that's how they were called there) on it's ships, but there were numerous other places where they were used (Bussard intakes were used, for example, in Wing Commander). In FS, Steve-O's ships have blue, glowy intakes which (IIRC) he refered to as "Bussard Intakes" (they seem to be inspired by Scooby Doo's WC ships). Non-canon, of course, but FS isn't realistic anyway.

Re: Inferno 10th Anniversary Announcement
They also make no sense in FS because there's absolutely no precedence for them anywhere in FS canon.

Re: Inferno 10th Anniversary Announcement

they're GLOWY BITS.

GLOWY BITS are COOL, therefore OK.

Missiles in this picture look more like something out of X3TC rather than Freespace, but that could just be me.

Aren't those missiles the Geodess?

They may be, it's one of the most awesome missiles in Inferno.

Re: Inferno 10th Anniversary Announcement
Yeah, they're based on the Geodess. Too bad the weapon did not play a notable role back in INFR1.

Re: Inferno 10th Anniversary Announcement
I thought the INF team said the Gargant was a joke ship, a test, never to be actually used.

Re: Inferno 10th Anniversary Announcement
If used, the Gargant will play a notable role in Inferno. It's the symbol of Shivan power, a thing that deserves a lot of importance in the INF universe. It's... unstoppable.

My 0.02€ on the Soter: it's completely plausible to see a ship like that in the Earth Alliance's fleet, even in 2400. They could be the remnants of Jovian cruiser divisions which couldn't rely on beam weaponry, and they may still have their uses at long range.
